The Ocean Protection Council and the California Natural Resources Agency are collecting information from entities named in Public Resources Code Division 20.6 §30961-30968 generated by AB2516 (Gordon) to create the Sea Level Rise Planning Database. These questions are designed to support the following goals:
A. Assess implementation of key state policies, including:
i. Governor Brown’s Executive Order B-30-15;
ii. State of California Sea-level Rise Guidance Document and Ocean Protection Council Resolution on Sea-level Rise (2011); and
iii. Safeguarding California Plan (2014) and Ocean Protection Council Resolution on Implementation of the Safeguarding California Plan (2014).
B. Provide information on sea-level rise planning activities to support coordination, collaboration and prevent redundancy.
C. Assess aspects of successful adaptation: objectives, actions/next steps, capacity, and ability to overcome barriers, decisions, process, and capacity. Capacity is a key aspect of the framework for successful adaptation and the results of the survey can inform legislature and senior administrative leaders.
